New Delhi: Apple says it has lowered the price of its 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops and updated its processors. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now starts at Rs 99,900 for 128GB of flash, and Rs 1,14,900 for a new 2.6 GHz processor and 256GB of flash. The former was earlier available for Rs 1,14,900, while the latter was priced at Rs 1,34,900.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now features a faster 2.4 GHz quad-core processor, and the top-of-the-line 15-inch notebook comes with a new 2.7 GHz quad-core processor and 16GB of memory.
Apple also announced that the 13-inch MacBook Air with 256GB of flash has a new lower price of Rs 94,900.
The updated MacBook Pro with Retina display and MacBook Air models are available today through the Apple Online Store and Apple Authorised Resellers.
The MacBook Pro with Retina display is said to be the world's highest resolution notebook display. The MacBook Pro with Retina display features flash storage that is up to four times faster than traditional notebook hard drives.
Apple unveiled the new MacBook Pro models last fall. It has flash memory instead of the traditional hard drive, which makes it thinner and lighter.
Apple reported a surprising decline in Mac sales in the final quarter of 2012. It sold 4.1 million of them, down 22 percent from shipments a year earlier.
